I love Disneyland!  No matter how old I am, there is always something magical about visiting Disneyland.  I especially love visiting during the holidays, particularly during the Halloween and Christmas seasons.  Frank and I recently headed to Disneyland on a weekend getaway sans kids.  We both had a great time and took A LOT of pictures!

One of the first things you see as you walk up to the gates of Disneyland are Halloween decorations.  I loved them!  On the roofs of the gates were giant pumpkin decorations of Minnie, Mickey, Pluto and Donald Duck.  They were so much fun and immediately got me into the Halloween spirit!

The decorations continue as you walk up Main Street.  There is a Giant Pumpkin at the beginning of Main Street, in which you’ll find visitors snapping photos.  There are also lots of fun Halloween decorations throughout Main Street.  I kept taking picture after picture because they were so festive, cheery and fun!  Even the singers on Main Street were dressed for the festivities!  There were also lots of fun Halloween decorations throughout the park.

Throughout the park, we found foods that were Halloween-themed, as well as treats and goodies.  Heck, it inspired me to create some of our very own Halloween goodies with the kids at home!  I even enjoyed Candy Corn colored cotton candy in the park.  It was so yummy!

And of course there was one of my favorite rides all decked out with decorations for Halloween and themed from the movie, The Nightmare Before Christmas.  The Haunted Mansion is one of my favorite rides at Halloween and Christmas.  It is so much fun and I love the decorations both outside and in the ride!

Have you visited Disneyland during the Halloween season? What was your favorite part?
